- Percentage Of People Who Have It: Roughly 10%
Morton’s Toe is quite often something that looks weird to everyone who sees it. Most people have five toes on each foot, with the literal “big toe” on both feet. Of course, it is located on the far right of a person’s right foot, while on the far left of a person’s left foot. For most people, the “big toe” is referred to as such because it is the biggest toe on the foot. But for those with Morton’s Toe, that is not the case.
For those people, the “big toe” is actually smaller than their second toe. The look of those with this genetic trait often varies among those with it. For some, it is the same height as their big toe but not as wide. For others, it is just as wide as the big toe. Meanwhile, for others, it is just as tall and wide as the big toe. You might get some who see the second toe grow taller or wider than the big toe as well. Interestingly, the Statue of Liberty in New York actually has the Morton’s Toe genetic trait too.
